CORNEIL & BERNIE is a 52 x 13-minute series in which a dog genius has his life turned upside down when his bumbling dog sitter, Bernie, discovers his true talents. The 26 x 26-minute PIGEON BOY tells a new type of superhero tale in which the ultimate antihero of Ultrapolis, Pigeon Boy, must save the city from crime. In the preschool series JASPER THE PENGUIN (52 x 5-minutes), a displaced penguin from the South Pole accidentally ends up on an ice cap that takes him to a city far from home. The show is a Millimages co-production with Toons'n'Tales, La Cinquième and WDR.
